The time period within the novel is constantly changing from the past to present, which I did not like, because since read inconsistently, I had to go back into previous chapters to refresh my memory. This book was an enjoyable read. It was necessary to pay close attention in order to keep up with the plot and the changing time periods in every chapter. It is a perfect book for young adults and teens that enjoy books of fantasy and romance. Night Circus was a book that kept me so immersed in the story that I wanted to read it all in one sitting.
I love to write, and I have always managed to be rather successful at it. Despite my good fortune, I am aware of the fact that some people loathe writing, and I can understand that because math is my Achilles heel. But, if I may be so bold as to offer a few words of advice- I hope that isn 't too presumptuous? Try to relax when you 're writing, go somewhere where you are comfortable, writing is just putting words down on paper, so try not to stress over it either! Have fun with your writing, for the most part, the writer is in control of the conversation, recognize that and use it to your benefit.
Lesson 8: Journal Response I enjoyed reading Black Boy by Richard Wright because it was a touching story about the significant of books. In the story, Wright shares the story of the life-changing transformation books introduced into his life during a time of hardship. Books allowed him to change his perspective of life a feeling he describes as, “The impulse to dream had been slowly beaten out of me by experience. Now it surged up again and I hungered for books, new ways of looking and seeing. It was not a matter of believing or disbelieving what I read, but of feeling something new, of being affected by something that made the look of the world different.” I was able to connect with the story because like Wright, reading is one of my favorite pastimes.
Perhaps these nighttime visions will continue to break the artilleryman’s peaceful sleep for the rest of his life. On the other hand, in “Glory,” Shaw did not have a wife or family to go home to, which made the poem more personal because the artilleryman had a wife, an infant child, and a home. “The Artilleryman’s Vision” was also more vivid compared to “Glory.” The artilleryman, unlike an infantryman, had a better chance of living and a better visual of the war because he would stay in one place and not run around. Describing what he
Entry #20 Dumas definitely has some weaknesses and strengths in this book. He made me feel many different emotions such as happiness, anger, sorrow and sympathy. One of the weaknesses in this book was the fact that he jumped around from subplot to subplot; at times, it was very confusing. Although he did jump around, the events were in great detail, and helped me better understand what was going on. I, personally, enjoyed this book and would recommend to anyone who was looking for a little adventurous novel, with a sprinkle of spunk.
The infomercial is appealing to our specific audience (people who enjoy literature and fictitious novels) due to the unique combination of a service which delivers a mystery box of books to the customer fast and cheaply while also retaining the thought of the customer and their preferences. The infomercial also hosts a large basis of logos as it is assumed that people who enjoy to read are generally more intellectual. Through the effective use of “scientific data”, logical reasoning, and other aspects, the infomercial appeals to the readers watching the advertisement by emphasising that there is no better alternative than the product. Besides the logos based advertisement, the infomercial has details about how everything works and pushes for credibility with the usage of generally known authors/books to make it seem like there is no real downside to the subscription given that good books from good authors are assumed to be in the mystery boxes. The infomercial uses ethos, pathos, as well as logos in different
I sat alone at my desk with the door shut and lights off. It was a Friday night. Ordinarily, I would be out with his friends or on a date with Leena, but now, I was using my free nocturnal hours to wallow in my melancholy mood, finishing my assigned reading of Macbeth. Growing up, I read a lot. We didn 't have a television in the small apartment, so all I had were books to keep me company.
This book isn’t just about romance it’s about life, this book is so intense I felt that I was in that book living in the characters shoes. You can feel the pain, you can feel the joy. This book might make you cry or it might just make you laugh. Whatever happens, I believe you will enjoy it. In conclusion I recommend this outrageous piece of literature you call “If I Stay”.
Authors made their writing more metafiction as to where they knew that what they were writing was truly fiction. Many postmodernist authors wrote about ideas that were already written. This gave them the opportunity to take that idea and put their own twist to it. Postmodernism had a central theme that the world was about to get them. “As the world entered a new era of mass communication and technology (i.e., "technoculture"), writers started tapping into the theme of technology going into, um, overdrive and people being left powerless under its reign”(Shmoop Editorial Team).
Other things that intrigue me about anything involved with Literacy it is definitely writing. I enjoy reading people’s summaries of books written by other people, especially when I’ve already read the book it’s nice to see what other people’s views are on books and their opinions.

He started to wonder if the beliefs they imposed were right. Fighting, yelling, and violence was now a routine in a home that was once filled with god and loved. To cope with the struggles in his life, Rodriguez read books. He read books such as Immanuel Kant Critique of Pure Reason, and Marx’s Manifesto, which taught him to view this life in a different way. Rodriguez said he learned a lot from these books such as historical materialism, dielectrics transcendentalism, and metaphysics.
In the Southern colonies, children usually started their education at home. (It was not super important to them). The distances between farms and plantations made town schools very hard to get to. Plantation owners regularly hired tutors or house maids to teach boys’ math, classical languages, science, geography, history, etiquette, and plantation management. When the boys had the opportunity to have an education outside of the home the schools were quite strict and often had much punishment for doing the wrong.
